I need an explanation for this Environmental Science question to help me study.

This short video from the U.S. Public Broadcasting System (PBS) discusses the recent development of organic agriculture in Cuba.

Why did Cuba make this conversion to organic agriculture? What are some of the ways that the Cuban system described in this video differs from the industrial agriculture system in the United States and other western countries? Do you think that the Cuban model could be transferable to the United States? Why or why not?
